Piloted by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Potenza, Aesthetic Plastic Surgery provides a variety of beauty-enhancing services in a medically sound environment. Licensed medical aesthetician Shannon Martin zaps the wayward blood vessels known as spider veins with her Venus-imported Cutera laser, using light-generated heat to kill off offending veins by coagulating the blood within them. Deceased vessels are subsequently reabsorbed into the body, fading away like Mozart’s one-hit-wonder career over a period of four to six weeks. The cosmetic treatment is safe on all skin types, returning epidermises to their porcelain-scented factory settings.
Under the watchful eye of owner Jennifer, the stylists at Innovations Salon & Day Spa trim, texture, and tint hair with ease. Their teen services cater to guests aged 12 to 17 by providing acne remedies and cutting hair into the shape of prom tiaras. Makeup artist Carrieann coats skin in 100% mineral makeup, while massage therapists knead muscles with treatments such as hot-stone, paraffin-drench, and sinus-relief massages. After each appointment, visitors can stock up vegan, gluten-free, and sulfate-free certified organic products from Surface.
In business since 1967 and in possession of an A+ Better Business Bureau rating, the licensed health-care professionals at A&E and SNY Surgery Center tend to clients with laser and aesthetic services. Skilled and always-friendly technicians combat wrinkles with Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin injections, using proprietary blends of wrinkle-diffusers to target spots above and between the eyebrows, blocking the movement of muscles that dig furrows, crow’s-feet, and bang canyons. The staffers also wield lasers to fade or eliminate the appearance of age- and sun spots, unwanted tattoos, fuzzy patches, and spider veins. Their nonsurgical and surgical hair enhancements allow patrons to reclaim former coifs, and body-reshaping services can improve the appearance of silhouettes.

Laser devices fill every loop in Nashville Laser Spa's tool belt. The certified laser technicians reach for them during noninvasive LaserFast hair removal sessions, where they unholster the one best suited to an individual's skin tone. With the help of accompanying cooling systems, each laser banishes unwanted follicles while keeping skin from overheating. Confident in their results, hair removal is backed by a two-year guarantee after the completion of eight treatments. Their laser prowess extends to facial rejuvenation as well, and they stimulate collagen growth, improving texture and tone with the help of LaserLiteTx skin-tightening treatments.
